(e) The licensee employed a device, scheme or artifice to defraud or engage in an act, practice or course of business that operates or would operate as a fraud or deceit;

(h) A fact or condition exists that, if the fact or condition had existed at the time the licensee originally applied for the license, clearly would have warranted the director in refusing originally to issue the license.

(3) The director may revoke or suspend only the particular license with respect to which grounds for revocation or suspension may occur or exist, or, if the director finds that the grounds for revocation or suspension are of general application to all or more than one of the licensee’s offices, the director may revoke or suspend all the licenses or such number of the licenses issued to the licensee as the grounds for revocation or suspension apply to, as the case may be.
